#AD #Affiliate

First things first I received these as a PR package, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I do have an affiliate code in which I would earn a small commission from.

But before I get into what I received, let me tell you how today’s been. It’s been PANTS!! I’m not feeling physio this week, I have low energy (no reason why really) and ALL my joints hurt. Curse you #EhlersDanlosSyndrome

I have started to get back into a routine with putting make up on, back into my skincare and generally looking after myself once more. It’s so easy to fall in a trap of not caring.

Especially when you aren’t leaving the house 95% of the week, and working out a lot too.

I definitely don’t wear make up to #Hydrotherapy or while I do #Physio at home. So my interest had dropped over Jam, Feb and up until now really.

That said I have a wonderful bundle I was sent from Gerard Cosmetics

I got Hollywood Blvd Glitter Lipstick. ( Love this the most, I already have Swipe Right Glitter Lipstick. I love the sparkle they give) Good staying power too!

Rodeo Lipstick. A dusky hue of Pink, I love the creamy texture, and femininity of the colour.

Vintage Rose Lipstick. A real English rose look, it’s exactly what it says it is. Perfect day wear colour this spring.

Divalicious (Lighted) yes seriously it lights up and you have a handy mirror! Lip gloss. (This impresses me so much with the Light, clubbing gloss wearing just got easier!!) Again quite dusky pink, hint of mauve.

Pouty Princess (Lighted) Lip gloss, well the name sold it too me really. (I go for similar colours as they suit me best. So brighter pink, but so cute,. Almost retro vibe) again this is Lighted and has a Mirror too.

Kiss Assist Lip Plumper, I really don’t like lip plumpers as a rule, as they hurt me. (Especially soap & glory) like a million wasps are on my lips. however I wanted to try and I’m so glad I did, as this has NO sting, only tingle, and cooling. I didn’t feel too sticky either. And it looks lovely on top of the lipsticks too.

Super booster whitening pen, I’ve not tried it yet, as I’m awaiting a good occasion or event to go to to make it worth it. But I do hear excellent reviews on this.

Lastly I had to get #GCSquad Merch as I fully support Jennifer Gerard and her cosmetics brand, the team have been wonderful to me, so warm, so friendly, and super supportive too.

Thank you everyone, and if you do want to order you can use my link here and get 30% off your entire order. This ships from the USA so be mindful of customs and shipping. But to all my USA buddies, you’ll find shipping good for you.

Even #Zoella latest range is shipping from the US now, as it’s becoming more popular to have American brands popularity grow over here in the UK.

Mac Look Fantastic BeautyBox

Archive, Beauty Boxes, Blogger Reviews, Events, Make Up, Beauty, Skincare

Every so often the universe is perfectly aligned and the stars are for you!! This happened for me when I spotted a Collab I never thought I’d see. Mac cosmetics and Look Fantastic.

This box was full of delights to try out.

Small eye shadow Amber Lights 1.5g a highly pigmented peachy gold shade with a shimmer that delivers a long lasting application of colour. I used with prep and prime for extra pop of colour. Absolutely divine!!

Satin Lipstick Twig 3g this lipstick is an everyday go-to-shade with neutral rose tones and a creamy formula for comfortable all day wear. Can’t believe how much I love this colour. A nude for me is difficult to find, but it’s finally here!!

Little M.A.C lipglass Spite 2g this suits everyone lipglass shade, can be worn alone or over any lip pencil or lipstick to creat pout perfect shine that lasts. Again what a perfect colour for me, nude but not foundation lips, not too brown or pinky. Just gorgeous.

Little M.A.C prep and prime fix+ 30ml this cult favourite hydrating mist is packed with antioxidants and minerals to give skin an instant boost of hydration while setting make up. It’s good yes, love it for making the halo colour more vibrant. But as a setting spray nothing beats #GerardCosmetics rose spray slay all day

Strobe Cream Sample 6ml this iridescent moisturizer is packed with antioxidants and reflective particles to create a radiant glow. Never used a strobe before, but I loved this!! Perfect for party season coming up.

Last but not least Little M.A.C mascara in extreme dimension 3d black lash 4g this mini mascara that has maximum impact. In extreme dimension covers the lashes from root to tip, providing extreme volume and curl. I do love this, but it’s so difficult to remove!! The day after I still find bits on the lashes. And if chopping onions, the mascara runs everywhere!! Not what my #CharlotteTilbury does.

I’m over the moon I got to try Mac, I have never tried them before, an I was seriously impressed.

Glossy box UK #Galentines February box

Beauty Boxes, Blogger Reviews, Events

This month’s box is Neon pink and funky, in fact I think it’s my new favourite box (more designs like this please!)

In the run up to receiving mine, I’d obviously checked on others to see what they got, as I’m nosey!! And I saw lots got the #IconaMilano Mascara which is admittedly good, but I craved the #SkinChemists Aqua Repair Serum. So I wished and prayed for it. And Woohoo I got it!! This has 3 FULL SIZE products and 2 minis

24Hour Aqua Repair Facial Serum this is suitable for all skin types, delivering vitamins and antioxidants to the skin to reduce redness and hydrate deeply. It was a FULL SIZE product 30ml RRP £64 skinchemists.com clearly way out of my price range, but I’m glad to have this opportunity to try it out, see how the other half lives eh?!

Other variables were #Oolution Eye Cream which I’ve had before, nice but I didn’t actually see results. RRP £30.99 Or there was another Mascara by #Rodial Glamolash XXL RRP £24 which again I’ve had before, I love it, but I’m very very happy with #SkinChemists

Another #Sleek palette in #VintageRomance and though I’m not a fan of Sleek before, I’m still eager to try it out, and the colours are beautiful. FULL SIZE product RRP £8.99 sleekmakeup.com/uk brilliant price for this beauty

#SteveLaurant Nude Lip Gloss a beautiful cruelty free lip tint that’s creamy and hydrating. FULL SIZE RRP £17 stevelaurant.com *Packaging lovely, it’s truly pretty, but the Nude colour on me looks like Foundation lips* and sadly this is too pricey for me as a gloss.

#Studio10Beauty is a new brand on me, it’s a Make up Mist Glow-Plexion a gentle mist that hydrates lacklustre skin (that’s me) primes and also a setting spray. I use Makeup revolution one at £5 for quite a lot of product. This however is a MINI SIZE RRP £14 and full size would be £26. I’m not convinced it’s worth that much? Will it lure me away from Makeup Revolution?? studio10beauty.com

Last but not least it’s a MINI SIZE #Ciate gelology paint pot. Meant to give 10 days of high gloss shine with minimal chipping (we will see) it’s cruelty free so thats a plus. Pale minty green is perfect pastel shades for spring and will look amazing with pastel lavender combo. RRP MINI SIZE £6 full size is £9 ciatelondon.com

So there you have it, a great array of things to try out, feel pampered and beautiful this Valentine’s Day.
